Kolmogorov medal 2006.jpgThe Kolmogorov Lecture is given annually by distinguished researchers in the field of theoretical computer science,or related mathematical sciences, who made outstanding contributions to developing research directions initiated by Andrei N. Kolmogorov. This is a public lecture on their work delivered at the University of London.

Andrei Kolmogorov, 1903 - 1987, made fundamental contributions to probability theory, statistics, analysis, mathematical logic, the theory of algorithms, information theory, the theory of dynamic systems, and many other areas of mathematics, mechanics, and physics. His discoveries completely changed many of these areas. He was a brilliant teacher, with many of his students and followers continuing his groundbreaking work.


  • The 2010 Kolmogorov Lecture will be presented by Professor Robert Merton (Harvard Business School), winner of the 1997 Nobel Prize in Economics. The lecture is scheduled for 6pm, 23rd February 2010, Windsor Building Auditorium. The abstract of the talk can be found here.
